Modern fundamental physics contains ideas just as revolutionary as those of Copernicus
extra dimensions of space, or the possible existence of other Universes.
Testing these concepts requires enormous energies, far higher than what is achievable by
the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, and in fact, beyond any conceivable Earth-bound
experiments. However, at the Big Bang, the Universe itself performed the ultimate experiment
and left clues and evidence about what was behind the origin of the cosmos as we know it,
and how it is evolving. And the biggest clue is the afterglow of the Big Bang itself.
In the past decade we have been able to answer age-old questions accurately, such as
how old the Universe is, what it contains, and its destiny. Along with these answers have also
come many exciting new questions. I will present an overview of current cosmological
constraints from the cosmic microwave background and large galaxy surveys, and comment
on some of the experimental and methodological innovations that are needed to realise the
promise of upcoming surveys.
